Michigan Centennial Farm - Jollay's in Coloma
We were up in Michigan recently to do our annual apple picking and I came across this sign at Jollay's in Coloma that celebrates the place being a Centennial Farm. From the Historical Society of Michigan site, we find out what it technically means to be a Centennial Farm:
The Centennial Farm Program recognizes farms that have remained in the same family for 100 years or more and highlights the farm’s contributions to Michigan’s development. To be designated as a Centennial Farm, a property must be a working farm of 10 or more acres that has been continuously owned by the same family for at least 100 years.From the looks of this sign, they're *well* past the 100 year mark.
A neat little program that highlights some of the hardworking family farms that make Southwest Michigan a great place with a bountiful harvest.
